Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. (Ps. 46:10 KJV)
For God to intervene in our situation, we have to align ourselves with the scriptural principle outlined in the verse above. Moses and the children of Israel faced a life or death situation just after they left Egypt. Pharaoh, along with his entire army, was matching fearlessly towards the Israelite’s’ camp. Moses was in touch with God, and was not moved by the sight of the Egyptian army. As he saw the army, he said these words to the Israelites in Exo 14:13: “Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you today“. We have to be still in the midst of adversity so God to act.
Unfortunately, it is not natural for us to be still in the midst of adversity. The Spirit of the Lord will infuse inner strength, as you dare to act on the Word. This is not living in denial. It is living by a higher reality of faith. When we get anxious, fearful, and agitated about our situation, we unknowingly plant a stumbling block for any divine intervention. Learn to “hold your peace”, and God will fight your battles.
God’s Word requires time in your mind and mouth to take a firm root in your heart. This is what meditation does. What is your typical attitude when faced with a stressful situation? Compare it to the Word above.
Ask the Spirit to help you build strong spiritual muscles so you can “stand still” in the midst of any chaos.
APPLY THE WORD TODAY!
The power of the Word is released when we do what it says. Take a step of faith, and trust God. Intentionally act on the Word above today. When a stressful situation comes against you, remember the verse above. You may even say it out under your breath to charge up your spirit. Rather than stepping into fear and anxiety, start praising God for being with you, and taking you through adversity. Hold tight to your joy and peace. If your mind says “you are crazy”, then declare “I am not crazy. I am simply doing the Word, and the results will be obvious soon!”
